"Good Morning...Below a few pictures of the Artillian forks in action here.......shifting oak sleepers and a stone gatepost - all part of our landscaping endeavours.

Very pleased with the forks!
Note that the weather in the pictures is the exception not the rule – hence the cab on the tractor.....

Thanks,"

"Chris and Artillian Associates:

I have received your pallet fork shipment this morning. Just as other customers have indicated, your attention to detail is evident in design, production, finishing and packaging. While I considered bucket forks on a cost basis since I will likely use these only occasionally, I'm glad I ordered Artillian upon opening the packaging. As a former Quality Program Manager in the Aerospace/Defense industry, I appreciated seeing the design / stress analysis, choice of materials and coatings you apply. All first rate.

There was some minor package damage on the outside during third party transit (Fed-Ex Ground), but nothing seemed to touch the frame cocooned inside. You even thought about details such as placing the paperwork in a zip lock bag and including a Werther's Original candy. Very well done!"

"Can't do this with a bucket! Never thought I'd be able to pick up and move a boulder this size with my 1026r!"

"The gear arrived yesterday evening in Spain. Great stuff!

....The combination really works well, and I am glad I went through with them.
Yesterday I cleaned all the pallets around the house which were still there after the construction....

...The 5/16" chain works just great as you can see. It fits well in the slots.  I can use it also very well with the three point hitch I bought from your colleagues at Omni Manufacturing.

Thanks again for your fantastic support!"

"For All the Folks at Artillian, LLC, "Well Done!"

JDQA Pallet Fork Frame, Pallet Forks, Backrest Assembly, Casters and 2" Receiver Hitch Adapter safely arrived in Laramie, WY all intact this afternoon. My compliments to those who designed the packaging and packed the components. The time taken to glue and staple the boxes resulted in all of them arriving without penetrations or collapsing and prevented any nicks or chips to the painted components. Everything arrived in Factory Showroom condition.

I am most pleased by the quality and craftsmanship that went into manufacturing each piece. The components were quickly assembled and mounted on my JD 3720/300CX. I look forward to putting the Fork Lift and Hitch Adapter to work starting tomorrow. A new 850 lb. drag for our gravel roads needs to be lifted off its delivery trailer; one or more of my four trailers will need to be repositioned; building materials for a back porch need to be shifted from the delivery site to the work site. Thank you for manufacturing equipment that will make these tasks a little easier.

Best Regards."

"...Finally getting around to zipping off some pictures of the fork cart inspired by the ones I saw on your site.

This was put together from the odds and ends I had here, no trips to town for parts. From the beginning I had envisioned a dual purpose cart that could be used for the forks and also anything else to save the back! The 2 batteries on the cart weigh about 120 lbs. each.

Now that I have the backrest I'll have to see if the cg has changed enough to warrant an extension of the aft end and repositioning the wheels to get the load forward.

The backrest fit like a glove and was easy to install. Nice touch sending along the proper size driver!"

Here is some feedback from someone who adapted our Receiver Hitch Adapter onto their Kubota fork carriage...

"Green Works!!..Just a little grinding and relocate pins"

"Great add-on attachments to make things easier!
Thanks"

"Just wanted to let you know that the Artillian fork rack arrived yesterday in pristine condition. I was very impressed with the packaging and the design is fantastic. Most importantly, I was proud to see the Made in the USA sticker on top of that beautiful John Deere green powder coat.

Best Regards,"

"I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I did receive the forks yesterday. I was very impressed with both the packaging and the care and attention that obviously went into the design, manufacturing and finish of the frame and guard. I have not had a chance to use them yet as we are having inclement weather. After seeing the quality of what I purchased I definitely plan to follow up with the receiver and 3 point mounts. Please also keep me posted on the progress of your new grapple."

"I picked up the forks today from the FedEx office near our house.
They mounted right up on my 2520 without issue.
I hope they work as good as they look.....

Thanks for the quick service."

------------------

"The forks work great.
They even lifted my chicken coup as shown in the attached. (Approx. 250 lbs)
They also move a lot of brush but I didn't get a picture showing how much can be moved in one load.

Best regards"

"This weekend I will be showing the pallet forks to my brother as he has the same tractor.  I think people do not always realize how many uses there are for them."

----------------

"Your pallet forks work great. I have found many uses for both the short and long forks. The short forks work great for landscaping and digging out rocks and small trunks."

"Love the light weight forks they do heavy jobs! Won't consider having a compact tractor without them."

"....Got them hooked up to the loader this morning and moved a few things around, including taking that granite slab out of the truck.

Thanks!"

"..They are installed and have been put to good use already. They are everything I expected. Nicely engineered and produced.

Attached are a few pictures of them in use on a welding table I just built. The welding table I'm lifting weighs approximately 700 lbs and is powder coated.

Thanks for everything..."

"I got the forks last Friday.  They arrived in perfect shape.  The packaging was great.  I got them installed yesterday and got to use them a little.  I’m sure I will be using these everyday in the summertime.

Thanks for the great service."

"Well my forks have made life so much easier.  Unfortunately my Tractor loader hydraulics stall at 5 feet with 1200 pounds of concrete loaded.  Very well built product."

"Moving a 14 foot by 12 foot wide kid's playhouse out of my workshop.  I have a warehouse cart strapped under one end while I use the tractor with forks to lift the other end.  The chain notches helped strap the tractor and playhouse together while pulling through the grass."

"I received my order today.  I wanted to let you know I’m impressed with the efficient design of the forks, and the quality of the workmanship.  And the packaging job was remarkable – the fork set arrived in great condition.

 The forks will come in handy for years to come.    Thanks!"

"Here is a photo in action, lifting the first log off the stump of one of the trees we took down last week. That piece of oak is about 36" in diameter.

Thanks"

"...Finally got the projects done so I was able to get a little time on the tractor with the forks moving some tree tops around for further processing. Which leads to my next point...

WOW! Those forks are tremendous and the uses for them are countless! Excellent design and spectacular construction, these will soon become one of the most valuable tools at our house.

Thanks again for filling a niche and for making a great product."

"I received your forks frame, and I think it is a good product. My forks that I had work great on the frame. Its hard to believe something that light can be that strong. I used them right away to lift some trees that were cut along the creek bank. They are a great saw buck.  Thanks again for your time explaining."

JK-Michigan

"Thanks for your prompt and courteous service. I received the removable backrest today and before you know it it was on.  Beautiful fit..... It really looks good and I am really pleased with the excellent craftsmanship.  The actual time it took to complete the installation was about a half hour.  Now all I have to do is find the time to get some seat time on my new 2720. 
Thanks"

"...Just wanted to drop you a email and say hi and let you know the forks are working excellent. These forks are bullet proof. I moved a big rock out to the front lawn and I lift attachments in and out of my trailer with no effort. I’m loving it. I sure am glad I bought them."

GE - New York

"I just thought I'd drop you a quick note to say thank-you for your effort to ship this as soon as possible. It actually arrived on the 11th which was excellent because we were running a day ahead of schedule. I'm amazed at the extra lift capacity due to the optimized weight of the fork frame compared to the other pallet fork I was borrowing from my neighbor. The geometry is also better as your design gives me better roll back angle with my 200CX loader. Use of your pallet forks has greatly improved my ability to move material around my property.

Thanks"

"...the forks arrived just fine. I pick up the tractor next week and hope to use them soon. You do some very amazing work!!! Its good to find a U.S. builder that [cares] about what he puts out. Great Job!!!!

Thank you"

Here is a link to a video clip sent by a recent owner of a set of forks with them mounted on a JD 2520 and helping to process some firewood.  There are other videos which can be seen following the one below.  Thanks for sharing!

"...I use them more and more in my problem solving around our 20 acre place.  My fork lift add-on attachment is by far the best investment yet that I have made for my 4310 Deere. As you know, in the past I unloaded a huge IR air compressor from TSC with your forklift attachment. I've moved bedding with same. Last week I unloaded a TSC disc harrow  from the bed of my F150A with the forklift.  A 1000 lb or so flail mower is the rear counter balance that you can't see.  Safety was my #1 concern.

I continue to wish you great success and hope that I can purchase from you again.... You and your products are the best!"

"...here are some pictures of an attachment made using your AP-1 Brackets. We use for moving boats in & out of our storage facility. We have 80’ x 80’ barn the is filled each winter with boats."

DB - Michigan

"The forks are a very good companion to the bucket, very easy to change, very versatile, we are very happy with it.  We thought the tractor can handle a bit more weight but sometime in the future we would trade it in with a bigger JD.  So the investment in the forks was no doubt the right thing."

OG - Mittagong, Australia

"The pallet in the picture is ~1500 Lbs. of hay and the main reason for needing the light weight carriage.  The elevation in the picture is the point where the hydraulics stalled out...."

TP - Washington
John Deere 3320

 

   

"I thought you would get a kick out of this one. I would not recommend
trying this for a novice..... Advertised dry weight is 606 Lbs. I have to
get the boom situated just right before I can lift it this way."

NOTE: It is NOT recommended to use loader forks this way casually.  The load should be calculated at the given reach to not exceed the limits of the frame or machine.  Otherwise, damage and injury could occur.

 

   

"..I thought you’d like to see a few more uses that I have found for the forks  and lifting boom that I built.  The one thing that I didn’t get a picture of that it helped tremendously with was laying out a 330 ft. roll of field fencing around a few obstacles.  These forks get a lot of use around my little farm."

 

"So far they work good. Hopefully the weather holds and I can put thru some real test loading up some scrap steel. Still need practice running the tractor controls, only had the tractor a couple of weeks now."

Here's a plow project using a 3-QA Frame as a base!

 

"I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with my forks.  I just moved a bunch of rocks this week and they worked great.  I also stacked some large cottonwood tree rounds with them....Thanks again for a great product."

BS - Washington

 "The forks are no doubt going to be a tremendous help on getting my playground cleaned up."

"...The versatility of these things is proving endless...."

"Hauling away tree trimmings…..could never do that very well with the materials bucket."

 "Simple task as taking out the garbage."
(Of all the uses I might have imagined, this definitely wasn't one of them!)

PM - Pennsylvania

"...Used the forks yesterday, great stuff!  I moved a few pre-shingled shed roof sections (too heavy for me to move by myself).  I also actually moved a few pallets with materials on them.  And although not in the owner's manual, I found an old tree root just showing through the grass.  Yes, the attached picture tells the tale.  Not the design intent, but with the great range of curl the loader has, the forks were able to very neatly peel out the root without creating the mess left behind when using the bucket. 

These are certainly great.  ....Thanks again, man!"
